  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Out again Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Franson (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Penguins. Franson will miss his second straight game, and the team has yet to establish any sort of timetable for his return. Casey Nelson and rookie Brady Austin stand to see more ice time while Franson and Taylor Fedun (undisclosed) remain sidelined.

  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Will miss Monday's game
    By RotoWire Staff

    Franson won't play in Monday's matchup in Detroit due to an undisclosed injury, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio reports. The 29-year-old hasn't lit the world on fire offensively, notching 19 points in 65 games, but his 80 hits could give him a small boost in value in some leagues. With Franson joining a slew of injured Sabres defensemen, the team will need to make a couple call-ups to fill out their depth chart before Monday's puck drop.

  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Cleared to play Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Franson (foot) will return to Buffalo's lineup for Saturday's game against the Blues, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports. Franson was initially projected to miss 2-to-3 weeks with a bone bruise in his foot, but the blueliner was able to skate Wednesday and Thursday, and he's evidently already overcome the injury after a single week of rehab. The Sabres will be happy to have the puck-moving defenseman back in their lineup against St. Louis, as he was on a roll before sustaining the injury, notching seven points (two goals, five assists) in his last 10 games.

  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Progressing ahead of schedule
    By RotoWire Staff

    Franson (foot) could return to the lineup for one of Buffalo's games this weekend, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports. Franson was initially expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks with the injury, which pegged him for a return later in the month. However, after skating both Wednesday and Thursday, Franson could be back as early as Saturday against St. Louis. While his statline may not jump off the page (16 points in 51 games), Franson is a solid puck-moving defenseman who can provide some value in deeper leagues.

  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Out 2-3 weeks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Franson is expected to miss 2-to-3 weeks with a bone bruins to his foot, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports. While Franson hadn't been placed on IR as of Saturday morning, his lengthy return timetable makes it probable that he'll end up in that very spot. As noted in the report, the bruising defender should return around the NHL's trade deadline, and coincidentally he'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer -- this makes him an potential rental player for other clubs.
